A recent Gartner report on Web-Scale IT predicts that by 2017, 50% of the global enterprises will adopt modern architectures used by large cloud services providers like Google, Amazon, and Facebook. These large cloud providers are processing petabytes of data and supporting millions of users. The adoption of cloud, mobile, social and big data technologies by large enterprises is also causing a similar explosion of data and concurrent users. Large enterprises have a real need to rapidly scale their implementations and reduce the latency of data access to support these new use-cases. At Software AG, our R&D team has spent years trying to make our products ready for the “Web-Scale” IT age. A great example of this is the integration of Terracotta’s BigMemory technology with the webMethods ESB to provide advanced in-memory ESB capabilities.
In-Memory ESB technologies are being rapidly adopted in telecommunications, retail and financial services industries.
The push towards “Web-Scale IT” has well and truly begun. The combination of webMethods and Terracotta BigMemory can empower global companies to scale and improve the performance of their IT infrastructure and to go where no enterprise has gone before.
